Chicken and Vegetable Alfredo Casserole

Great variety of vegetables and lots of room for variation is what this recipe offers.

The crunchy topping has grabbed by attention for use in other recipes.

There are some variation suggestions at the end of the recipe, one is to experiment with alfredo sauce flavors, which I highly recommend!  

My favorite is roasted red pepper alfredo sauce that is so flavorful and delicious, it does not taste like it came out of a jar . . . and it really does not matter what brand you use.  Another thing I like to do with the roasted red pepper sauce is include some cut roasted red pepper, either fresh or the ones that come in a jar (which is a great item to keep in the pantry to perk up many dishes).

As with all recipes, this semi-homemade recipe can be adapted to fresh vegetables or the combination of vegetables that you prefer.  Recipes are just a guide!


    • 1 bag (19 oz) Green Giant® frozen broccoli & carrots with garlic & herbs 
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
    • 1/3 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into small pieces 
    • 1 egg, slightly beaten 
    • 1 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken 
    • 1 jar (16 oz) four-cheese Alfredo pasta sauce 
    • 1 can (15.25 oz) Green Giant® whole kernel sweet corn, drained


Heat oven to 375°F. In large microwavable bowl, microwave broccoli & carrot mixture as directed on package, using minimum cook time.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix flour, Parmesan cheese, butter and egg with pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Set aside.

To hot vegetables in large bowl, add chicken, pasta sauce and corn. Stir gently to combine. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole or 9-inch deep-dish glass pie plate. Sprinkle with crumbly mixture.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown.

Tips from Pillsbury:

Two cans (5 oz each) tuna in water, drained and flaked, can be used in place of the chicken.

Alfredo sauce comes in different flavor varieties. Experiment to find your favorite.
